Non-UK/EU Surinam Airways flight compensation — what are my rights?

Do you fly with Surinam Airways from Amsterdam? Because Surinam Airways is a non-EU airline, your rights to flight compensation are not always covered by British and EU law.

To be eligible for Surinam Airways flight compensation, you must be travelling from Amsterdam.

More broadly, if you are flying from the UK or Europe, it makes no difference which airline you fly with.

Unfortunately, your passengers' rights are not protected under British and European flight compensation regulations when flying to the UK/EU on a non-EU airline.

See table below for more details.

Extraordinary circumstances — when can Surinam Airways deny me compensation?

Surinam Airways can deny flight compensation if the delay or cancellation was caused by a third party or force majeure. Those situations are called extraordinary circumstances.

Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
 

  • Bad weather conditions, such as thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.

  • A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry (for example, a strike of air traffic control workers at a specific airport).

    However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!

  • Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.

  • Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

  • A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.

  • An ill or unruly passenger.

  • Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
     

Please keep in mind that airlines may invoke those extraordinary circumstances even if such circumstances did not occur. Airlines do this to avoid paying out compensation.
